Hello,

The message that you are getting is only a warning and would not prevent your Apache and Vhost from working. As long as you get the Syntax OK at the end then the Apache restart should work as normal.

If your Virtual Host is still not working, feel free to share the content here and I could try to advise you further.

Regards,
Bobby
